Omega Engineering YBK series of feed-through terminal blocks are tension clamp connection style for fast wire termination and reliable secure connection. The DIN rail mountable YBK series terminal blocks are available in gray, blue, red, yellow, beige, and green. The tension clamp can be opened with a small screwdriver inserted next to the wire entry, then slip in the field wire and remove the screwdriver for a reliable and secure connection. No wire pre-treatment is needed, even with stranded wire, Omega says. They are rated at 600 V, UL 94 V2 Polyamide 6.6. The YBK series has four sizes of grounding terminal blocks. Accessories include end plates, end brackets, cross connectors and marking tags. They are said to be ideal for chemical, plastics, and packaging industries, especially for applications involving control panel and electrical panel wiring. They are RoHS compliant and have a CE mark. See more details, including a detailed table of specifications, at: www.omega.com/Auto/pdf/YBK.pdf.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
